Sweet Saturday – Chocolate stout cake with bourbon icing

I occasionally bake for my co-workers and those lucky enough to have offices near ours. It keeps me in practice and I get to make stuff that sounds especially yummy. When I’m not eating keto I love beer, well, even when I am eating keto I love beer I just try really really hard to drown my sorrows in whisky in its various forms, but I digress…

I like beer. So I loved when I stumbled across the beeroness. I can’t remember if someone pointed the blog out to me but I’m glad however it happened. Anyway, when I saw her recipe for Epic Chocolate Stout Cake with Chocolate Bourbon Sour Cream Frosting, well, I gasped. And made it for my co-workers.

Although I usually follow recipes to a T the first time I make it, here I made two layers instead of three. I ended up with some cupcakes instead.

The icing is a bit stiff so it needs to come out of the fridge well before you want to ice it.
